This is a fully guided Alaska float trip down one of the most pristine rainbow trout and salmon rivers in Alaska. The trips will be 6 full days on the water, with camping riverside nightly. It is not a fishing trip for those wanting to be pampered by the conveniences of lodge life, it is however the best trip for those wanting to experience Alaska from the outside in the wilderness. Borealist Outdoor Adventures (BOA) is dedicated to ensuring that you having a safe and comfortable outdoor adventure. Christian Ellwel has fifteen years of wilderness experience in the state of Alaska guiding hunters and anglers alike within the harshest climate in the USA. BOA has taken camping to the highest level of comfort with spectacular food and riverside accommodations.
The fishing in June is a rainbow trout fishery that is best done swinging with small speys or 6-8 wt single hand rods. The trout are voraciously feeding on smolt and fry as they travel out to the ocean. Trout visciously attack a swung or stripped jumbo leech pattern, sculpin, minnow or fry patterns. Other species available throughout the summer; Grayling, Dolly Varden, Lake trout, and all five species of salmon.
Salmon are available as early as the first of July when Sockeye arrive and will be fished to with 7-9 wt Spey rods larger single hand rods and the latest switch rods. The Sockeye runs in Alaska are one of the greatest feats of nature on the planet rivaling any animal migration known to man. Add these to the impressive mix of angling opportunity and you have the complete Alaskan package.
Part of the experience of being on the river with BOA is sharing & enjoying the excellent food.
By 6:30 each morning the dining tent is loaded with fresh fruit, juice, and hot coffee. This is followed up shortly with a proper breakfast. Some of the morning meals you can expect to enjoy include; croissant sandwiches with smoked ham and Swiss, cream cheese stuffed French toast with a sour cherry bourbon reduction and breakfast sausage, green chili breakfast burritos with hash browns on the side, eggs Benedict with fresh hollandaise sauce, scrambled eggs with sausage hash brown and toast. Granola and cereals are always available.
Lunches are a fun time for everyone to get together and rehash the morning’s float. Hearty whole grain breads with select meats and cheeses make up the base for the mid-day meal. During the salmon run we always have a delicious salmon salad on hand made with green onions, dill, and capers. A side of chips and some cookies for desert are all you need to stave off hunger for the afternoon.
